Summer is the time of the year with no school with no stress with no anxiety. Its the time to have fun. Time to celebrate your survival of the past year. The time to sleep and sleep and sleep…
This summer I cant wait to have the tiny rocks from the beach rub against my feet, to have the ocean salt sting my nose, to have the wind from the crashing waves brush against my skin. And to be able to dive right into the clear blue water.
But this summer that’s exactly what I’m not doing instead I’m spending all my summer in a Boston dorm and going to dance classes daily for five weeks. To push every muscle in my body to its limits. To bend over back just to try to get my leg higher. To spend the entire summer in side a room the hundreds of other dancers who are trying to do the same as me. To try and be noticed by the director. To be complemented instead of corrected.
It might not sound like fun but for a dancer its one of the best things that can happen to you. To be accepted to the third highest school in the country. To go and just get better and better and getting accepted to better and better ones each year. Or maybe even getting asked specifically to come and join their full year round school. Every dancer dreams of this experience that I’m going to get.
But its not all serious work you get to go see New York, to go shopping all over Boston, to see a broadway play, and to have no parents all summer! My summer is filled with one thing, and its the one thing that I really want to do.
